spontaneous scholarships for #saa11 registration

06 Jul

I want to draw your attention to the Spontaneous Scholarships to fund registration for the 2011 SAA Annual Meeting, an effort led by Kate Theimer of ArchivesNext.  If you’re interested in receiving a scholarship or donating to the fund, check out the blog for details!  The deadline to request funding is midnight this Friday, July 8.  So far $800 has been raised!

What’s the reasoning behind the Spontaneous Scholarships?  While conferences provide great professional development opportunities, attending conferences is expensive.  The cost of registration, travel, and lodging is prohibitive, especially if you aren’t receiving any outside funding.  This is a great idea, and I hope to see more crowdsourced scholarships in the future!
